Super interesting

Visiting this decommissioned submarine was a great outing for my son and I. Very informative talk and history of the sub well covered. Super interesting to learn how submariners lived.

Well worth the visit. Any naval history buff, quite simply should not miss it. Take the children, they will love it. Round it off with a trip out to the submarine, if that is still possible.

Could not visit the submarine
May 2017 • Solo
The submarine is no longer open to the public due to internal wrangling within the SA Navy. There appears to be no date for the reopening

Awesome Experience!
Mar 2016 • Family
I read about the SAS Assegaai on Facebook and we decided to do a family visit. The arrangements to get to the submarine is really good from Jubilee Square. It was such a great experience for our Teenage son and tween daughter. The "Captain" was so knowledgeable about "all things submarine". We had a great experience, one that you wouldn't have every day. I give it 10 out of 10!!!

DRY DOCK
Dec 2016 • Couples
Please note that the SAS Assegaai is in dry dock for repairs as it was leaking. Expected back in service as a museum late 2017

Epic!
Jan 2016 • Friends
We were treated to an authentic account of life aboard one of South Africa's first submarines - by someone who'd "been there - done that". What a great experience!

Bring all the kids interested in physics, mathematics, engineering..... even catering! It's all there.

Impressive!

Wow, this place has everything! We were impressed by the full helicopter inside, the submarine, and so many other things. And the staff at the front were so welcoming and had a wealth of information to share! Very interesting.

Great tour!
Jan 2016 • Family
It's not often you get a chance to experience what life must have been like on a submarine. The tour guide was very informative and made the tour very interesting. Even our 5 and 7 year old boys had a great time.

It was nice going back through time and learning about the history of the SA Navy and the dockyard. It also brought back fond memories of my time spent there in the early seventies.
